Can someone give me a little help on how to read the performance stats of McAfee MOVE's mvadm command?
The output of mvadm status:
C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\MOVE AV Server>mvadm.exe status
Total number of cksum req: 6629518
Total number of file transfer req: 5553596
Total number of smart file req: 6779
Cksum cache hit: 1075915
Total av scan req: 5553586
Total av scan failure: 0
Data recv failure: 11
Resp send failure: 25
Total scan threads: 300
Total heart beat threads: 56
Total idle threads: 295
Number of requests in queue: 0
Number of items in cache: 999756
Avg request process time: 0.148097 sec
Avg request wait time: 0.000030 sec
Question 1) I'm looking at Total number of checksum requests at 6.5 million and a cache hit of 1 million. That's a pretty low cache hit of around 15%. Is this considered a good number? Is there a way to improve it?
Question 2) Total number of file transfer requests. Can someone explain what this is? Is this saying that all of my MOVE clients have made a total of 5,553,596 requests of files not in the clients local checksum cache? How can I improve this number? I suspect that would improve performance tremendously since the client would have the answer locally vs. over the network?
Question 3) Number of items in the chace are 999,756. My configuration says to MaxCacheItems 1,000,000 (0xf4240). That means I've basically maxed my cache. Comparing that with my curent cache hit of 15% it seems I'll probably continue getting a 15% cache hit. Also, how does the cache clear itself? Is it first-in first-out or something smarter such as how often the item in cache is used?
Any other advice on how to read these stats to communicate to the applications team how McAfee Move is performing....or not performing and how I can scale and improve my deployment as we deploy this to a larger scale.
Thanks for any help,
